    I keep seeing it referenced but have been under the impression it is no longer happening?

    No.

    Was a stupid matchup to begin with.

    I think Meek got his visa issues cleared but Usman said he moved on.

    Pointless fight.

    Feed Colby to Usman instead, let Meek bang with someone who'll stand.

    Just rechecked UFC site they finally took the fight off the page. They had it up still last week after it had long been rumored off.

    Last I heard Meek had visa issues, so probably not. I agree with @chitoortiz though, it was a shitty matchup. Usman should be getting top 10 guys next imo. Maybe the winner of Condit v Magny.

    Usman deserves a top 10 fight. Meek should've solved his visa issues sooner.

    That card is fucked. 3 weeks away and they still haven’t finalized the card and promoted it.

    Was looking forward to this, both are good with different styles. Usman's the better prospect so let him beat up Colby as suggested. There's always a fight for an up & coming, non top-tier striker like Meek.

    Usman deserves a Top 10 guy.

    Meek posted some time ago that he received his visa. Abdelaziz, manager of Usman said something along the lines that Meek is a good guy and they happy for him and stuff but they moved on and they want a bigger fish for Usman. That's what I read some time ago at Russian site with mma news.

    One of the few fights i was looking to on this card. Looks like this weekend's Fox card is officially better than 219

    I think Till will probably on the London card in March if I had to guess.
